Hamilton disagrees with comments from F1 colleagues: ‘Hopefully everyone comes home safely’

Lewis Hamilton cannot agree with the positive words of his colleagues about the race in Saudi Arabia. Esteban Ocon is confident that the organization of the Grand Prix weekend will ensure safety after last year’s incident, while Sergio Pérez is happy to be back in Jeddah. The Mexican thinks that Formula 1 can help the inhabitants of the country.

During the first free practice session of the previous Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, an Aramco depot was hit by a rocket attack. Some drivers are not worried about the situation in the country. “We rely on the FOM and the organization to keep us safe,” Ocon is quoted by RaceFans. “Obviously it was terrifying what happened last year and no one ever wants to go through something like that. But we trust that everyone around us will put us in a safe situation to race.”

Pérez said he was “happy to be back” in Jeddah. Last year, the Red Bull Racing driver took pole position for the first time in his Formula 1 career. “As a sport, I think we can also help the country evolve for the people who live here. So this is something we can be proud of as a sport. On the other hand, we also rely completely on the organizations that bring us here to race on the track in a safe place.’

Hamilton: ‘Actually the opposite of everything they said’

Hamilton does not agree with the comments of his colleagues. The Mercedes driver also did not want to finish the weekend last season. After an extensive discussion between the drivers, the race weekend continued. ‘I don’t have much to add to their comments. It’s actually the opposite of everything they said. Hopefully everyone has a safe weekend and hopefully everyone comes home safe after this event. That’s all we can do,” said Hamilton.
